Log Sources

Administrator permissions are required to access this feature.

Log sources are the basic building blocks of log collection in Axon. A log source is a unique source of log data collected from a host. Hosts can have one or more log sources.

Previously, there was an Add Log Source button at the top of this page in Axon. However, this button has been removed.

Log sources are created automatically in Axon when active Collectors bring in logs. Therefore, the manual process is not needed, as it created duplicate log sources in some instances.
